babe, that sounds a lot like an eastern european cuke salad called mizeria.

i have to run right now, but i'll post recipes tomorrow.

kads, great recipe, thanks!!!

copied and saved. i think i might try subbing thyme for the oregano since i have it in abundance in the herb garden.

CJ, I think the one you mention is what (in the South) we call pickling or salad cucumbers. They are always small - not more than about 5 inches and have little tiny prickly feeling on the skin. I slice them with my mandolin and use them in every kind of salad - also in a sandwich. The only problem is they must be used right away - don't have much of a fridge life. Luckily everyone in my family loves them, especially our grandson who is here quite a bit.

I don't have one with sour cream, but I make one with slice cucumbers, a small white onion sliced in rings, a teaspoon of dill, a cup of white vinegar and 3/4 cup of sugar. (Add vinegar and sugar until the cucumbers are covered.) Let it set overnight. The salad is crisp, tangy, and refreshing.

My grandmother called them "summer pickles". I'm not sure how long they would last because they go too fast to tell around here. I don't boil the vinegar and sugar but the sugar does dissolve overnight. When you boil it, are the cucumbers still crisp?
